Jamaal, a player on a college basketball team, made only 50% of his free throws last season. During the off-season, he worked on developing a softer shot in the hope of improving his free-throw accuracy. This season, Jamaal made 54 of 95 free throws. We want to test the hypothesis that Jamaal's free-throw percentage p this season is significantly different from last year's percentage. The approximate P-value for an appropriate test is

1) 0.816
2) 0.091
3) 0.182
4) 0.194
